I am planning on either a Stewart 1.78 or 1.85 fixed screen with Veluxe and Deluxe frame. The projector I will be using it with has a power zoom which I would like to use to get rid of the black bars that result from projecting a 1.78 image on a 1.85 screen or a 1.85 image on a 1.78 screen. Is the Veluxe capable of absorbing all of the light from the resulting overscan? Quick responses are needed since I will be ordering the screen within a couple of days.

Scott,

The stewart deluxe Velux does a very nice job of absorbing overscan, it does wonders for the overscan from my LT-150....

Is it absolutely perfect? Well I can only tell there's overscan at about 1' - 2' away from the screen. Any further and its too faint to see.

John,

That's great news. I think that I will get a 1.85 screen since it is the same aspect ratio as around half of the DVDs in my collection. For 1.78 material, I will zoom out the picture slightly so that the side bars are gone. This will result in about a 1" overscan top and bottom which the Veluxe will absorb. For 2.35 material, I will zoom out the picture slightly so that I lose a couple of inches of information on each side which would be absorbed by the Veluxe, and in so doing, make the image seem slightly larger and the horizontal black bars slightly smaller.

I just wanted to add that I agree completely with John. This material is like a black hole. During warm up my CRTs throw an image outside the screen ,the frame, onto the wall ,and onto the velvet plum colored cutains to the sides. One can see the light on all of these but not on the screen frame; it is that good!
